After 14 hours of travelling, including a flight from Calgary to Chicago at 8am, 4 hours layover in Chicago, 2 hour flight from Chicago to Memphis and finally an hour drive from Memphis to Jackson, I finally arrived at Mariott Courtyard in Jackson. I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised at the room I got. King size bed, free internet and a 36 inch LCD with cable was definitely enough to satisfy my needs.
Had a huge sushi dinner with Marty at the local Fuji Yama. Right now I'm just chiling in my room getting settled in while spending some time on MSN.
